Genre-hopping experimental it-kids Micachu & The Shapes offer a slightly different shape to the Los Angeles Afro (and kraut and ’80s dance) rock enthusiasts Fool’s Gold’s Hebrew-intoned, endlessly sunny standout track “Surprise Hotel.” The untouched original’s the first single from the Luke Top, Lewis Pesacov, and Foreign Born-related company’s forthcoming self-titled IAMSOUND full-length. As you might expect from Mica Levi’s fractured and percussive compositional sense, the shuffling, layered remix adds wrinkles and stutters. The latter’s more complex and oddly spacious, yeah, but in either form it’s the perfect way to get the week started.
